Book Reviews

  • I will give an honest review of each book and post it to this blog.
  • Some books may also be featured on my social media.
  • If I am sent a book that is not the first book in a series, I would most likely request the previous books in the series.
  • While it is my aim to get to reviewing your book as soon as I can, I do not have a deadline for book reviews.
  • I may decline to review a book if the contents are something I am not comfortable with reading.

Book Formats

  • I am currently only accepting print copies.
  • I am based in Singapore and will provide an address for sending print copies upon email request.

My reviews will include:

  • The general information of the book (title, author, genre)
  • My rating out of 5 stars
  • Synopsis (in my own words, unless otherwise stated)
  • Overall impression (likes and dislikes)
  • Additional information (e.g.: characters, writing and theme of the book)
  • Whether I would recommend this book or not, and if yes, the types of readers I would recommend it to

My favourite genres

My favourite book genres include fantasy and historical fiction, but I will also read various crime/thriller and mystery novels. I am also open to reading books for all age groups from middle grade to young adult and adult fiction.

Book Features

I would be happy to accept book features, book excerpts, blog tours and cover reveals if I am unable to review your book. I love featuring a variety of books on my blog and I wish to support authors and their books as much as possible. I will consider all requests, but I may decline some.

If I agree to feature your book on my blog, I would greatly appreciate it if the authors would share my feature post on their social media as well.

If you are an author or publisher who would be interested in a book feature, please send me an email with the following information:

  • Book Cover
  • Book Genre
  • Release Date
  • Excerpt or blurb
  • Purchase Links
  • Author’s Background Information (you may include an author’s picture if you wish!)
  • Author’s Social Media Links

*The preferred format would be to email the above information in a Word document.

Do contact me by email if you have any other queries! (:
